LITTLE ROCK — The original 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution will be on display at the Clinton presidential library Friday — the 19th — through Oct. 24, library officials said Tuesday.
The document, bearing the amendment that granted women the right to vote, is on loan from the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C.
The amendment was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on Aug. 18, 1920.
A free viewing will be offered on Oct. 23 from 4 to 5 p.m. At other times, regular admission fees will apply.
Also, Bernadette Cahill of North Little Rock, author of “The Truth About the 19th Amendment: Its Meaning and Its Impact,” will be a guest lecturer at the Clinton School of Public Service on Oct. 23 at 6 p.m., library officials said.
